This Hawthorne modern home renovation called for modernisation and extension of the old home on a sloped block with a Brisbane river frontage, with the main focus being the family’s lifestyle and capturing the river views. Car parking was also an issue that needed to be addressed. Our focus was to concentrate on the re-development and expansion of the living area of the house and the addition of a covered deck to the rear of the house. With an open plan design to the redevelopment of the living room, the entire living/dining/kitchen space will have direct views out to the Brisbane River, making it the perfect place to dine and entertain. The covered deck will ensure that our clients can entertain guests all year round with easy access to the backyard, pavilion and pontoon.
We also designed a study-guest room on the new upper first floor above the current stairwell. This will ensure that visiting friends and relatives will have stunning views across the river and city. A small study nook on the main level will also be included just in case guests are occupying the study/guest room. A new light well via the internal stair will be incorporated so that the ground floor will enjoy natural lighting. A new contemporary roofline to the entire house will help to modernise the old home. A three car garage/carport and workshop will be developed to fix parking issues with covered access to the house. There will also be vehicular access to the rear of the property. The rear backyard pavilion will have an outdoor temporary roof covering e.g. sails, and consideration will be lent to how the remainder of the backyard will developed and linked back to the home.
